Supplement for students with little or no financial resources
If you qualified for the Loans and Bursaries Program in the preceding award year and the calculation of your contribution results in a negative amount for the current award year, you may qualify for a supplement equal to that amount. The supplement amount will take the form of additional allowable expenses.
Supplement for a drop in income greater than 10%
If you were a full-time student from January to December with no disruption in your studies and experienced a drop in income greater than 10% compared to the preceding year, you could receive supplementary assistance equal to one-third of the difference between your contributions for the previous and current years, but only if you received a bursary in the preceding year. This amount will be awarded to you as an allowable expense during the summer period.
